Introduction

Alongside the surge in blockchain-based virtual environments, the term Metaverse has risen to unforeseen prominence. Despite the new age fanfare, the term Metaverse was first introduced about 30 years ago in Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash.

The Metaverse referred to a virtual reality-based successor to the internet, where players used digital avatars to explore an expansive online world. Over the years, the term has evolved, and several iterations of Metaverse-esq environments have arisen: Second Life, World of Warcraft, Fantasy Star Online, Fortnite, and Ready Player One’s Oasis to name a few.

However, none of these iterations encompass what the Metaverse truly is, and to date there is still not a definitive definition.

The Metaverse in 2022

Metaverse has become a nebulous term, and similar to the Internet, the way we imagine it today will likely not be the form it ultimately takes. This is largely due to the fact that the Metaverse is not a single technology, entity, or organization, but instead a synergy of technologies, peoples, activations and more. Common characteristics of Metaverse environments today are that they are immersive, decentralized, experiential, and activities based.

For the purposes of this paper, we will reference Matthew Ball’s core attributes of the Metaverse, outlined in “The Metaverse: What It Is, Where to Find it, and Who Will Build It.”

As technology and society continue to advance alongside an evolving perception of what digital landscapes should be, the future of the Metaverse will slowly take shape. One of the fundamental technologies that will contribute to this ultimate vision of the Metaverse is blockchain, with the initial steps already being taken.

Be persistent – which is to say, it never “resets” or “pauses” or “ends”, it just continues indefinitely.

Be synchronous and live – even though pre-scheduled and self-contained events will happen, just as they do in “real life”, the Metaverse will be a living experience that exists consistently for everyone and in real-time.

Be without any cap to concurrent users, while providing an individual sense of “presence” – everyone can be a part of the Metaverse and participate in a specific event/place/activity together, at the same time and with individual agency.

Be a fully functioning economy – individuals and businesses will be able to create, own, invest, sell, and be rewarded for an incredibly wide range of “work” that produces “value” that is recognized by others.

Be an experience that spans – both the digital and physical worlds, private and public networks/experiences, and open and closed platforms.

Offer unprecedented interoperability of data, digital items/assets, content, and so on across each of these experiences – your Counter-Strike gun skin, for example, could also be used to decorate a gun in Fortnite, or be gifted to a friend on/through Facebook. Similarly, a car designed for Rocket League (or even for Porsche’s website) could be brought over to work in Roblox. Today, the digital world basically acts as though it were a mall where every store used its own currency, required proprietary ID cards, had proprietary units of measurement for things like shoes or calories, and different dress codes, etc.

Be populated by “content” and “experiences” – created and operated by an incredibly wide range of contributors, some of whom are independent individuals, while others might be informally organized groups or commercially-focused enterprises.

State of the Metaverse

Today, there is an explosion of blockchain enabled open Metaverses and there have been several iterations of Metaverse-esq worlds. Moving forward, the discussion will revolve around environments that take place in Web3, reserving environments such as World of Warcraft and Second Life to the realm of pre-Metaverse.

With the Metaverse being viewed as the next evolution of the internet, no shortage of companies, old and new, have jumped into the foray. Notable contributions to the space will be discussed below:

Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg triggered a momentous pivot for the social media company, allocating extensive resources on building a “maximalist, interconnected set of experiences straight out of sci-fi,” also known as the Metaverse.

Currently, Facebook is acquiring VR startups, notably Oculus, and established their first Metaverse product, a work environment called Horizon, accessible through Quest headsets.

Creators of the widely used Unreal Engine and massively popular battle royale game Fortnite, Epic Games has made significant contributions to the Metaverse even prior to the popularization of the term, having constructed a virtual world where millions of people play, socialize, and participate in the digital economy, and activities outside of gameplay.

Currently, Epic is developing photorealistic digital humans with MetaHuman Creator. In April, they announced a $1 billion round of funding.

Decentraland blazed the trail for blockchain-based virtual environments, establishing the Metaverse as their core product, and constructing a virtual reality platform on the Ethereum blockchain. Users are able to create, interact with, and monetize content and apps. Blockchain technology introduces a number of unique capabilities, such as democratized governance, true asset ownership, and composability.

Decentraland consists of 90 601 distinct parcels of land, with one piece of real estate notably selling for $2.4 million.

Sandbox is a blockchain-based virtual world in which users can create, buy, sell, trade and own digital assets in the form of NFTs. Sandbox engages a play-to-earn model, where users can assume the roles of creator and gamer simultaneously. Notably, HSBC purchased a plot of land in the Sandbox to better engage with sports, e- sports, and gaming fans.

Sandbox recently announced that it was looking to raise $400 million, placing it at a valuation of $4 billion. Last November, Sandbox successfully raised $93 million in Series B funding led by Softbank.

Other Major Players Include:

The Role of Blockchain

How does blockchain technology enable the ultimate vision of the Metaverse? Leveraged in many of the leading Metaverse solutions being developed today, blockchain presents an environment that enables true asset ownership, censorship resistance, no central point of failure, and perpetual existence. The ability to own and self custody digital goods allows for the creation of robust secondary markets, and the movement of value not only between Metaverses, but between networks, as well as between the analogue and digital world. Value can be generated in either physical or digital, quantified, and then transported via on/off ramps, empowering new economic activities that bridge the digital/physical divide.

Current Problems

Small addressable market and alienation of non-crypto users

A number of today’s leading Metaverse solutions require self-custody wallets and some form of cryptocurrency to participate. This raises issues of accessibility, especially in reference to the masses. At the time of writing, there are approximately 106 million crypto holders, accounting for approximately 1.3% of the global population. Assuming that not all crypto holders are Metaverse participants, and that non-crypto users have been traditionally alienated from these environments, today’s Metaverses are underwhelming, fall short of critical mass, and face significant challenges onboarding non crypto users.

Single digital identity pervasive across multiple environments

The idea of a single digital identity that persists across all platforms is appealing and has been proposed in popularized iterations of the Metaverse such as The Oasis. However, given the tendency for industry leaders to maintain their own identity systems (Apple, Google etc.), it is unlikely that a single avatar will be able to seamlessly move between all Metaverses. A user having multiple avatars may be preferential for the companies building Metaverse solutions, but also breaks the idea of a continuous digital experience.

Degree of interoperability

How interoperable do Metaverse solutions have to be? Similar to the issue of a single digital identity, the manner in which users and their belongings are able to move between worlds will impact user experience, as well as the value creators derive from their contributions.

Governance

Who should operate and govern the Metaverse? Ready Player One suggests a situation in which a single operator or group retains control of the digital environment. Other proponents believe that the Metaverse should be extensively decentralized, built upon community standards and protocols.

An Escape vs. An Extension of Reality

Snow Crash and Ready Player One both describe dystopian worlds, in which the characters escape to the Metaverse. In these situations, the Metaverse is a necessity for quality of life, rather than a choice. Although many people utilize digital worlds as an escape, the proposal of the Metaverse as it is understood today is a compliment, not alternative to reality. Successful Metaverse solutions will seamlessly bridge analogue and digital, creating one continuous experience, which brings us to our next point.

Blended Reality

Blended Reality refers to a continuous experience that takes place across physical and digital spaces. Aftermath Islands champions this form of experience through the integration of commerce, brands, and equity, through integrated technology, identity verification and other services. These integrations will allow the transfer of value, information, engagement and more across the digital divide, facilitating a continuous experience as opposed to a disjunct one.

Solution

The Metaverse is an ever-evolving concept, and we are still very much in its infancy. As such, it is difficult to define what the perfect Metaverse will be, but one proposal is that it involves one seamless VR/AR experience, with thousands of destinations. Everything is interoperable and interchangeable, where users move seamlessly between experiences.

For now, this remains a pipe dream, it is more likely that there will be several Metaverses, some will be interoperable while others will remain proprietary. Due to their secure and trackable qualities, NFTs and digital currencies will likely assume a major role in these experiences, and their ability to move between environments will impact appeal.

Ultimately, interoperability will be a huge factor, and will determine whether we have massive, continuous experiences, or disjunct ones as observed with proprietary online gaming.


Aftermath Islands Metaverse provides solutions.

The Metaverse Solved

Welcome to Paradise

Aftermath Islands is a blockchain-based blended reality (consisting of aspects of augmented, virtual and extended reality) interactive platform, consisting of theme-based islands, communities and estates.

Islands are divided into unique Virtual Land (VL) parcels, with landowners having autonomy over content published on their land. Users are able to buy, develop, and trade Virtual Land, property, and items as NFTs.

Players will be able to engage with virtual environments, work, play, learn, earn, socialize, build, and game in new and innovative ways, both online and offline. Aftermath Islands uses traditional game technologies, virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality to create new forms of engagement.

Aftermath Islands will deliver immersive experiences through dynamic storytelling, crafted by master storytellers from the comic book industry. This is integral to the themed aspects of the world and overall narrative.

Play-to-Earn games such as the Lost Kingdom of T’Sara, as well as challenges like virtual escape rooms will also help to provide a fun and engaging experience for players.

Aftermath Islands is currently engaged in pre-launch NFTs (later redeemable for virtual land and collectibles) on the WAX blockchain and is in discussions to add other protocols. These assets, and the blockchain-based components of Aftermath Islands will later be migrated, potentially to the Polygon Network.

Ultimately, Aftermath Islands will assume a multi-chain approach, expanding across multiple networks, protocols, users, and organizations.

About Aftermath Islands

In-Game Currency

CREDITS (code name) is the in-game currency of Aftermath Islands and are used to pay for goods/services within the Metaverse.

Currently in development, CREDITS will be renamed Doubloons, or “DUBS.” DUBS will be the official utility token and in-game currency of the Aftermath Islands Metaverse.

In-game tokens are already available through the purchase of Piggy Banks, which are vessels for in-game tokens and rewards as part of the pre-launch.

Purposed as a utility token, DUBS are designed to be used within the Aftermath Islands ecosystem. As such, a limit will be set on the number of DUBS that can be moved
  1. per transaction
  2. within a given time frame, outside of the ecosystem.
More details on the movement of DUBS will be released in further documentation.

In-Game Items

In addition to Virtual Land available on theme, community, estate, branded and private islands, players have begun acquiring and will continue to acquire a range of items, including common, rare, epic and legendary items.

Future updates will enable players to craft, through various professions, items into higher level items. As NFTs, players have the ability to buy, hold, trade and/or sell items they own independently of Aftermath Islands.

Aftermath Islands has already conducted test sales, in addition to the acquisition of Virtual Land, houses and other dwellings that can be added to player’s virtual land and select professions will be able to participate in the crafting of future dwellings.

GPU Cloud Computing

Developed to train neural network AI models, Aftermath Islands is working to harness the power of GPU cloud servers that can be configured to handle the intensive processing of light, shadows, and hi-polygon count graphics to enable any player on any device with a strong internet connection to experience graphics currently only available on consoles or high dollar gaming PC’s.  This technology potentially opens the doors to the average player to experience game play at an entirely new level of quality.

Famed Creative Team

Aftermath Islands has partnered with some of the comic books’ leading creative and writing icons that have been published by Marvel, DC and independent publishing groups to create stunning and engaging visuals, story lines, and creative content for Aftermath Islands.

Blended Reality

As discussed previously, Aftermath Island proposes a Metaverse solution that operates as an extension of reality, complimenting the physical world that we live in. This extension does not only refer to a player and their avatar. Rather all manner of real-world phenomena, brands, commerce, activities etc., will have a digital counterpart, blending seamlessly through their avatar or other proxy. The actions and interactions of either entity (physical or digital), will have implications for the other, and the successful implementation of certain technologies will help to blur the lines between digital and physical, promoting one continuous experience. Below are various technologies that will enhance connectivity between offline and online.

Degree of interoperability

an experience in which aspects of the physical world are enhanced through computer-generated inputs.

Extended reality

all experiences spanning real and virtual combined environments and human-machine interactions generated by computer technology and wearables. Technologies include augmented reality, mixed reality, virtual reality, and traditional digital worlds.

Virtual reality

Virtual reality a specialized form of graphical interface that presents an immersive, computer-generated experience. Users are able to interact with these environments using specialized technology such as stereo headphones, head-mounted stereo television goggles, data-gloves etc.

Quests & Activities

Each themed island offers a wide array of gameplay options and quests, suited for novice and experienced players. These activations will allow players to level up and earn rewards.

Aftermath Islands looks to promote community involvement in the development and deployment of new quests and activities. Users will be able to post and comment on a public discussion board, where ideas for quests and activities can be shared and developed. Other users will be able to contribute via “proposals,” which can then be up or down voted. Quest proposals that receive sufficient upvotes may be developed by the core team or granted to third-party developers. In the future, quest developers may crowd source their projects utilizing DUBS.

Medallions | Hobbies, Professions, Abilities

The Aftermath Island job system operates through Medallions, in-game digital assets that enable a user to perform professions. Medallions can be acquired through the Aftermath Islands marketplace using DUBS. Medallions take the form of NFTs and may be traded on the secondary market following acquisition. Through usage and other in-game activations, Medallions can level up for increased proficiency. Hobbies and abilities will be available to all players to be able, for personal use, to craft, heal, build, cook, tinker, ride and perform other abilities to help maximize individual player engagement.

All crafted items will require specific resources that can be acquired, gathered and / or crafted by other professions along with blueprints, which are templates for crafting any particular item, all supporting a potentially robust economy.

In-Game Utility Token Usage

With rich rewards and play to earn mechanics, our in-game currency powers Aftermath’s ecosystem:

Questing: Participate in activities to earn DUBS & items to sell on the Marketplace

Crafting: Items can be crafted using resources, and bought or sold in the marketplace

Staking: Earn rewards from staking utility token containers and key NFTs

Professions: Players can manufacture utility through the creation of specific goods and the performance of services.

Passive Distribution: Receive a share of the transactions through land ownership and exclusive item creation

Earned Revenues: Land owners and unique item owners can collect fees from hosting activities and providing utility

Digital Identity

Self-Sovereign Identity

Fiat Purchasing: – fiat gateways lower the barrier to entry, making Aftermath Islands easily accessible to both crypto and non crypto users.

Verified User Program – users can browse and interact with the knowledge that other users have been filtered and are “good actors.” Anonymity with assurance ensures that this trust is maintained without the user’s personal information being revealed to others.

Digital Identity – also referred to as Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and / or Decentralized Identity (DCI), Digital Identity involves the creation of a digital counterpart to your official government-issued document or other verifiable credentials, stored in a blockchain-based system. Users can choose how much or how little information they share. Digital Identity helps to reduce fraud, bad actors, and malicious activities.

Liquid Avatar Technologies currently allows for three tiers of Digital Identity verification

no information necessary

no credentials or personal information, prove biometrics and device verification only

complete and compliant identity verification and can include Anti-Money Laundering

Meta Hero Project – Users will be represented in Aftermath Islands by a 3D avatar, who will metaphysically hold their digital wallet/passport and account connection.

The Meta Hero Project is a separate but related platform that enables players to fully customize their avatar with life-like body type and photo-realistic face, in addition to unique skills, powers and personal attributes.

 

LQID Financial Services Card – Liquid Avatar brings the Metaverse’s first-ever Mastercard payment card and loyalty program to Aftermath Islands. Users, initially in the United States, with future regions planned, will be able to earn loyalty points on and offline every time they use the LQID card online, in the Metaverse and globally wherever Mastercard is accepted.

The LQID Card is issued by Community Federal Savings Bank, Member FDIC, pursuant to license by Mastercard International Incorporated. Mastercard and the circles design are registered trademarks of Mastercard International Incorporated. This card may be used everywhere Debit Mastercard is accepted. Use of this card constitutes acceptance of the terms and conditions stated in the Cardholder Agreement.

Deployment of Retail Marketing & Business Strategies

Brands will need to find new mechanisms to effectively engage with consumers in both on and offline environments. Utilizing a verifiable digital identity that is universally recognized in analogue as well as across the multiverse, brands will be able to better reach real, engaged consumers that are open to receiving brand messaging.

Mixed and Blended Reality activations will become the norm rather than the exception, providing brands with new opportunities to engage with consumers that transcends traditional marketing and better align with changing consumer demands.

Aftermath Islands has introduced physical and digital retail and strategies in conjunction with NFTs promotions to support and promote increased engagement and revenue activities.
